My Own Darling Wife,

                    I must write a few lines

before going to feed. I have had a good

long ride across country plus a walk

to look over the new position which we 

are taking over to-morrow night. It

doesn't look too bad considering that

it is part of the front line. I feel

a lot better for the rest + it has been  

a good rest from the mental

strain. We have had lovely

weather all the time and it appears

to be so settled that we may be 

fortunate for some time longer.

I hear the mail has arrived so 

perhaps  there will be another

welcome letter for me. My new

home will not be quite so cosy 

as this is but I think it will

be possible to  keep dry +

warm in it when not on duty
